Emergency School Closing Procedures

Severe weather conditions during the winter or other emergency situations may warrant the closing of school. The procedure varies depending whether closing occurs prior to, or during the school day.

School Closing Prior to the Start of the School Day

This will be listed on the following sites:

  • The SFB School Website: www.sfbschool.org
  • An E-mail sent from the school office
  • TV Channels 4, 6 & 12

Although we have our own listing on the above sites please note the following if you see or hear a different listing:

  • If Cedarburg Public Schools are closed-SFB is closed.
  • If Cedarburg Public Schools have a late start time-SFB will close.
  • If Cedarburg School System is open, we are probably open as well, but it’s best to check the appropriate listings to be sure.

School Closing After the School Day Has Already Begun

Once school has begun and the students are here, we may not close early due to weather unless the Cedarburg School System closes. Once school has begun, the dismissals of our students must coincide.

Please do not call the school to see if we are having an early dismissal. These calls congest our
phone lines, which are crucial to us at these times. As soon as the Cedarburg School District makes a decision to close, they will contact us and we will send out an e-mail and initiate emergency phone call procedures, in addition to putting the information on the closing sites as listed above.

A child will only be sent home if direct contact has been made with the parent or legal guardian. Children will remain in school until contact is made. Consequently, please be sure to keep the school office informed of all current home, work and other emergency numbers. Also, if we are experiencing inclement weather and you are not at home or work, please be sure that your cell phone is turned on.

If you do not receive a call regarding school closing and you feel that the weather is not conducive to sending your child to school you may call your child in absent. If school has already started and conditions begin to deteriorate, you may come and pick them up.
